The Bible Comes Alive: Queen Esther - October 4th

October 4, 2018  /  7:00 PM  /  OVU Main Campus (Room 139)

Presented by Jeffery Donley, PhD  |  see full bio

Young Hadassah has survived a terrible loss and now this beautiful young Jewess was content in her life of anonymity. He is the Persian King Xerxes—the most powerful man in the world.  When Almighty God brings the two together, the course of history is forever changed with the Jewish people facing certain annihilation.

When Hadassah’s beauty catches the eye of Persian soldiers she is captured and taken to the glittering palace harem where Hadassah becomes a candidate for a beauty contest with the winner becoming the Queen of Persia, the mightiest empire on earth. What will become of her fellow Jews living in exile among the Persians?

In this presentation, Dr. Jeffery Donley will focus on the life of Hadassah (her Persian name is Esther). Hadassah, Queen Esther, will have to make a life-and-death decision to either save herself or her people—Israel.

This event is free and open to the public!
